    Just as likely to have added plenty of new bugs.
    When i tried Plasma 5 and had problems i searched for them on the bug tracker and some of them go back years, fixed then broken again, rinse and repeat...
    It's a great shame i really did enjoy using it.

    Happy Mate user now.

        Plasma 5.3 had been called stable, then Plasma 5.4 had been called stable. What KDE user call stable, Gnome user call it unstable. Happy Gnome User for a few months.

          5.3 was very unstable for me.
          5.4 is usable on a daily basis, but still contains some bugs. It already works fine enough that I did not yet bother to install a backported 5.5.

            5.5.1 finally fixed a persistent bug where my network icon kept disappearing from the task bar, but most of the stability fixes happened in 5.4, at least for me.

            Still waiting to see what 5.5.2 and 5.5.3 will bring.

              5.2 was already stable for me. For the most part it's just drivers or Qt being a problem, not Plasma itself.

                Have they added the ability to have instant autohide for the UI? Last time I checked it had instant show, with a hide delay that drove me nuts.

                  Issues are issues no matter what is causing them, but you might want to read some of the reasons to why Plasma 5 is hit by "bugs"

                    5.5.2 fixed a lot already for me, compared to 5.4, I guess with the help of qt5 updates. Looking forward to qt5.6 which should squash remaining bugs.
